FINALLY getting some dry weather.  I’m getting outside to tackle yard work that has been neglected because of all the rain. Can’t sell the house with an ugly yard, right? Plus I just love playing in the dirt gardening.  What are you up to today?  Let me know!

Until next time, stay inspired and be crafty!

What’s your plan?

planning

What are your plans for this week? Personal?  Business?

I am NOT a good planner.  Things of often work out, but it’s chaotic and I end up stressed and crazy.  I’m working on it though.

We are not rushed with this move so I am taking the time here at the beginning to try and plan things out.  One of my goals is to color code all the moving boxes and even label what is in the box so we can locate things once we start unpacking.  Here’s hoping that it’s better than dumping everything into boxes and trying to remember what goes where.  If you have any moving tips, I’m all ears.

Until next time, stay inspired and be crafty!

Happy Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day weekend to all who are celebrating!  Wishing my mom a Happy Mother’s Day in heaven.  This is the last picture I took of her celebrating her last birthday.  It’s been ten years since she left us and she is missed.

Mom

I will be enjoying Mother’s Day with my handsome baby boy.

Living among the Amish we get to enjoy all their spring farm babies too!

What’s your favorite memory of your mom, or being a mom?  My mom was one of my creative influences… it’s her passion for crochet that got mine started.

Until next time, stay inspired and be crafty!

While we pack up…

AnnRe Handmade on Etsy is going to be taking a little break.  Once my family finds a house and gets settled, I am going to have a re-opening celebration (including a brand new website!)  In between house hunting and packing boxes, I will share updates on social media (@annrehandmade) when I can:

But the best place to get updates if via my Insiders email list.  It’s free and you can sign up right here.  I can’t wait to get back to making beautiful handmade designs!

Until next time, stay inspired and be crafty!

Warm Winter Update

It’s been a crazy winter here in Indiana. From frozen -49F windchills to balmy 50F days…in the same week! I normally enjoy winter, but this year I’m waiting impatiently for spring. How about you?

Winter is a great time to get a lot of planning, designing and crocheting done, and I certainly have been busy. My new Spa collection is ready to debut and I can’t wait for you to see it! But first, a few Etsy shop updates:

  • Free shipping in my Etsy shop will end February 28th. Starting March 1st, free shipping will only be available to those on my Insiders list.  Signing up is free, just click HERE.
  • Have you noticed the updated logo? A fresh look for 2019.
  • Just type annrehandmade.com and go directly to my Etsy shop!  Easy peasy!

Now for the new Spa collection!

sinkshot

I’m bringing back my handmade cotton wash cloths in a minimalist style along with some lovely, reusable cleansing pads. Cotton is one of the most popular yarns to use for wash cloths because it is not only luxurious, it gets softer the more you use it. This eco-friendly collection is debuting in both white and natural and will be available on Etsy Monday, March 4th. If you are an Insider, you get pre-launch purchasing beginning Saturday, March 2nd.  If you want more information, just drop a message.

Until next time, stay inspired and be crafty!
